Once you install an OS onto it (formatted with GPT partition scheme, and formatted as Mac OS Extended (aka HFS+), you can boot from the Thunderbolt port or the USB 3.0 port.
I have several drives, each with a different version of the OS and different applications.
You can either use the Installer, or clone an existing drive that is already bootable.
Just be sure to not connect both interfaces at the same time. Only one will work at a time.
